John Sayles is first and foremost a writer. The author of four novels and two collections of short stories, Sayles first entered the film industry by writing screenplays produced by others. This panel examines Sayles’ unique voice, both on the page and on the screen, and offers insights into what makes his screenplays so unlike what we normally see at the movies.
